Dear Patrons and Community Members,
We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of those individuals, families and agencies that contributed to our 2019 Scholarship Awards. This year alone, 51 local scholarships were awarded at graduation totaling $30,350. Not only were our students recipients of local awards, but they also received an additional $52,602 in outside scholarships for the 2019/2020 school year. With the potential for many of those scholarships to be renewed, our graduates have the potential to receive a total of $202,952 over 4 years.
Students also had the opportunity to earn dual credit while attending Genesee High School. 95% of the 2019 graduates took advantage of this program and earned a total of 401 college credits while attending Genesee Joint Schools, with an average of 18.7 college credits earned per participating student.
Out of our current 2019 graduates, 18 of 21 are headed directly on to a college or university to continue their education in the fall. College and Universities our students have been accepted to are:
- Lewis- Clark State College
- University of Idaho
- Washington State University
- North Idaho College
- Columbia Basin Community College
- Walla Walla Community College
Two have committed to the U.S. Air Force and the National Guard to serve our country, and four will be going directly into the work force.
We know the class of 2019 will achieve great things as they continue their education. But we couldn't have provided them all of these opportunities without the outstanding support from our community. On behalf of all the students and the Genesee Joint School District we would like to thank you for all your support, scholarships, and guidance you have provided our students over the years.
Dr. Wendy J. Moore
